Silicone Roof Coating Systems
One Monolithic Water Tight Seal of Industrial Grade Silicone
Engineered For Durability
Our Silicone Roofing Systems are high performance, liquid-applied systems engineered for toughness and durability. They dramatically increase and extend the service life of built-up, modified bitumen, metal, concrete roofs and single-ply membranes.
Why Choose Silicone Roofing?
Superior resistance to impact and fire, mildew resistance, flexibility, adhesion, and ease of application make Silicone Roofing Systems an excellent protective elastomeric barrier for extending the life of most roofing substrates.
Silicone Roofing provides a cost effective, sustainable alternative to traditional roofs that require expensive and disruptive tear-off replacement.
What We Do
Scope of Work
- Inspect roofing conditions
- Research roof history and performance
- Identify roofing decisions and make necessary corrections
- Prepare surface(s)
- Power-wash and apply primer
- Repair membrane and seams as required
- Apply silicone coating
- Inspect roof upon completion by manufacturer
The SSP System (Silicone Single-Ply) will extend the life of your roof. If the coating you apply is not on the roof membrane in a few years you will not have accomplished your goal. Polo Roofing & Coatings has a system that has addressed two critical elements in coating existing single-plies: first, is the longevity and second is adhesion. We have the answer with a silicone topcoat material. Silicones have been extensively used in construction for decades and have proven to weather better than organic based coatings. Silicone has superior resistance to UV so it will last. Secondly, adhesion is critical. A coating has to stay adhered through expansion and contraction of the membrane, through thermal-cycling and other weather cycles. Out multi-step system has shown superior coating adhesion over membranes, including difficult to adhere-to EPDM, PVC and Hypalon.
Coating application is a sound choice. Think green. A major re-roof including a tear-off generates massive amounts of waste and often much of that material is non-recyclable. Coating is renewable. When weathering wears down the thickness, new coating can be applied over it. This may be 10, 15 or even 20 years from now. Reflective coatings reduce energy consumption and lower surface temperatures. Silicone coating is high-solids, compact, efficient to transport and VOC compliant.
Removal of the roof, while incurring tremendous cost to the project, can also risk the building’s interior contents to exposure and potentially costly damage. The application of the silicone system can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of roof removal and replacement by reducing material and labor costs.
An advanced silicone coating will preserve the previous membrane by controlling UV damage, reducing thermal-shock and keeping the membrane water-resistant. The monies saved can be invested elsewhere, such as other building improvements.
With a cooler roof, the facility’s energy cost will be lowered.
Roof surface temperatures can be lowered by 60°F, see the infrared photo of a partially coated roof, on the left. Installing a reflective Energy-Star© rated coating will make the building more comfortable and efficient. Silicone has an Energy Star Rating. Consider how energy savings from a cooler roof, lowered surface temperatures and the elimination of waster from a roof tear-off will enable the silicone system to contribute toward LEED design credits.
Many single-plies have been installed over previous existing roof: most building codes do not allow the installation of a third roof system.
